We are in full swing of our Target project. We first started explore how the things in Target get to the store. We watched videos on this process. The videos showed warehouses where boxes were stored and then trucks loading the boxes to take to their final destination. This sprung interest in price tags. The children were interested in making price tags for our Target store located in the family living area.
Following the children’s lead, we began exploring receipts and what they are used for in target. We began making receipts, looking at pictures, and using receipts in our store. We have sketched and built gift cards, computers, debit cards, and money. Some of our practicum students have had phenomenal lessons, encouraging the children in their Target play.
The children have shown interest in how much things cost. They have the realization that the smaller things are the less expensive they are. They larger things are, the more expensive they will be. If this interest stays the same or increases we will explore this aspect of Target next week. If you hear any talk about Target at home, we would love to hear about it at school!
